Soursop ice cream?

  • 7

I tasted this transcendent flavor during a vacation in Belize (every single day I was there, actually)... does anyone know of a place in NY that has this flavor? Thanks!!!

  1. I'd call Chinatown Ice Cream co and ask.

    1. Doubt you will find this anywhere in Manhattan. The soursop fruit is not widely available in non-tropical areas like NYC. You can try Taste of the Tropics in Brooklyn: http://tastethetropics.com/ or some other trpoical ice cream parlor, which is NOT in Manhattan. The Bronx or Brooklyn is your only hope. And the quality of the fruit, therefore the quality of the ice cream will NOT be anything like in Belize!

      1. Actually, you can find soursop ice cream of the same quality in the states, in fact, you can make it yourself. It's not difficult to find frozen soursop pulp (not sweetened or concentrated) in latin and asian supermarkets. The Goya brand stuff is perfect. Mix with condensed milk and heavy cream -- you can make it as sweet as you like -- and freeze in an ice cream maker, blender or food processor.

        1. I've had it at Bao Noodles on 2nd and 23rd. They had jackfruit as well. It's real common in Brooklyn, cause we West Indians love soupsop as well.

          1. Tina's on 56th bet. 5th & 6th has a soursop shake. i'm guessing they use the Goya pulp, which is usually found in plastic bags in the freezer section.
